Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus seropositive camel handlers in Kenya

Share this to :

Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) is a respiratory disease caused by a zoonotic coronavirus (MERS-CoV). Camel handlers, including slaughterhouse workers and herders, are at risk of acquiring MERS-CoV infections. However, there is limited evidence of infections among camel handlers in Africa. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine the presence of antibodies to MERS-CoV in high-risk groups in Kenya.
